        How does these do for active use? Meaning jogging, walking, bicycling, ect. In picturesI noticed there does not seem to be any replaceable filters on the nozzle.

        @Poleepkwa - Nozzle has no filter. It's a very comfortable IEM and would probably be fine for active use. However I refuse to use anything more expensive then $30 IEMs if I plan to wear anything while running. But that's just me, I really don't like distractions while I do something.

      Went to Magic Mountain for the first time. Ton of fun. Taking my 7yr old and her two cousins (7 & 6) on coasters was a blast.

      Anyone have any problems with SDAC and Foobar? I'm getting the following error message:

        Not used an SDAC. I did have a similar issue with an m9xx, which required the appropriate 24-bit (or 32-bit, I cannot recall now) setting. It otherwise refused to play from Foobar2000.

        Listened to my Superlux 668 through my PC audio jack last week. It was an interesting contrast to HD6xx with an amp.

        I had the exact same experience with my se215s compared to my current day IEMs. Also when I tried out the MCTH for the first time compared to my fiio k5.

        I'm tempted on Saturday. I preach at my church the next morning, so I have to see how far along I am in my sermon prep. But my wife said she didn't mind. Actually, a couple of these sessions push me more toward going. And the possibility of hanging out after...

        Sometimes, when It's really quiet, I can hear Marv speaking, whispering. He tells me to do terrible things with tubes. He's there in my dreams. My hands turn into legos and everything goes dark to the sound of his laughter.

        Dvorak's melodies are such a treat to listen to. Symphony 7 is great... very Brahms like.

        The ninth (New World) is wonderful. I highly recommend Karel Ancerl's rendition as he gets its tragic element.

        Fournier with Szell as conductor excels at the cello concerto.

        I concur with the fit consensus. One thing that I did to see the difference is I used foam tips and let them expand in my ears. When I took them out I saw my left ear canal was larger than the right. But also when I use foam I don't get channel imbalance.

        I used to really notice CIEM imbalance with chiptune music I made (simple mono tracks of superpositioned simple waveforms with no other processing), verified by panning a sine wave as mentioned above. Coarse-grained test all in all, but comparing all this with another pair of IEMs would put the difference beyond reasonable doubt.
